All the news today was totally shocking: MySpace and Facebook having an announcement? Together? Stuxnet now the "biggest threat to industry" everywhere? National Unfriend day!? What!? Also, the scariest robot we've ever seen: Snakebot. Oh, and I have my own dirt track to nowhere in the UK. Suck on that, haters. --MollySubscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak thinks that the iPhone is tops in overall quality but also that when all's said and done, Google's Android platform will reign supreme in the mobile market.
"The Apple phone has very few weaknesses," Wozniak was reported as saying to Netherlands newspaper De Telegraaf in an interview (translation) posted today. "When it comes to quality, the iPhone is leading."
The newspaper also quotes Wozniak as saying, however, that "Android phones have more features" and deliver more buying options for those who don't want to be limited to … Read more
For today's frivolous tech post of the day, we bring you Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder and "Dancing With the Stars" alum, who last night made an appearance on CBS' hit show "Big Bang Theory."
The Woz is onscreen a little over a minute and interacts exclusively with ubernerd Sheldon via a "virtual presence device" in a restaurant.
Sheldon says he's a big fan and that Wozniak is his 15th favorite technological visionary. Wozniak remarks, "Only 15?" To which Sheldon replies: "It's still six spots above Steve Jobs. … Read more
Apparently, Steve Wozniak has some reservations about Apple's security methods.
"I can tell you that the test engineer who showed me an iPad after midnight, for (two) minutes, during the iPad launch was indeed fired," Wozniak wrote to the blog.
Wozniak said he did not learn that the "test engineer" was fired until later and he speculated in his e-mail that he thinks … Read more
Steve Wozniak, the patron saint of Apple computer engineers, is smiling down on Gray Powell.
Wozniak, who along with Ronald Wayne and Steve Jobs founded Apple in 1976, recently had himself photographed drinking a beer, staring into an iPhone and wearing a T-shirt that reads: "I went drinking with Gray Powell and all I got was a lousy iPhone prototype."
Powell, 27, is the now famous Apple engineer who last month went to a Redwood City, Calif., bar to celebrate his birthday but left behind what is believed to be the prototype of Apple's next-generation iPhone. Some … Read more
Updated 4:21 p.m. PDT Sunday. Readers have contacted me contradicting the idea that Woz got his iPad early. A student from Cupertino with the Twitter handle PyRo1509 tweeted: "I was with Woz all night. He didn't cut in line and he got his Ipad's the same time as Me. 2hr start NO, already had a 3G." All night? Goodness.
It seems that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak may have jumped an Apple product launch line in a new and most spectacular way Saturday.
If you are preparing to spend a long night parked in some freezing, wet sleeping bag just to be one of the first to own an iPad, there is something you might want to be on the lookout for: Steve Wozniak jumping in line.
And he has now confirmed to Newsweek that he has ordered three of the new thighPads, two for himself and one for a mysterious friend.
The accusations of … Read more
Apple normally offers a very simple message about its products. Often, there's not even a tagline.
So it's curious that at Apple.com, the company emits these words: "A magical and revolutionary product at an unbelievable price. Coming April 3."
I know that this almost Wal-Martesque offer is making many senses tingle. People are wondering how soon they can put in their iPad pre-orders.
Wozniak, in conversation with TV anchor Dana King, discussed some of the projects he played around with as a child such as wiring circuits and building ham radios. He said he never thought his interest in electronics would lead to a career--his interest was the result of personal curiosity. (He also went off topic for awhile on his Prius problems.) … Read more
This might be one of the most fruitful ads Google has ever enjoyed. And it wasn't even created by Google.
According to NBC Bay Area News, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was on the set of an education program called "NBC Class Action" when he was asked an entirely innocent question: what is your favorite gadget?
Wozniak reportedly replied: "Well, it's the latest one. It's a non-Apple product, but it's a gadget that just came out yesterday."
You will be stunned into February to hear that this remark was made the day after … Read more
